Hubby recently went back to school. He is in an MBA program and one thing I was warned and prepared for is the amount of time that Hubbs spends away from school. It doesn't bother me too much to be honest. But I know that even though this decision is a good one ( and the right one for our family), it can take it toll. He often feels that he is missing out.
I don't know about you but I really wanted to help him feel loved and appreciated throughout this new experience for all of us. I am sure it is a bit stressful going from working full time and making a pretty good income to going to school full time and making a $0 income. There are so many factors and reasons to be worried about the future. However, as his helpmeet/partner/wife/best friend/cheerleader, I need to be there to SUPPORT him. I want him to know that even if he has a bad day or a bad interview or just is plain burnt out, that he has a fan club at home. A place of refuge. That I am on his side 110%.
With all that said, I wanted to put together a short list (oh boy, there are the lists again) of things I can print out and give to him to say "I am here for you. I am rooting for you."
Super Hero Dad by Kiki Comin (her stuff is AWESOME! Lots of freebies and her etsy shop rocks!!)
Originally created for Fathers Day. But I am going to use it for just a "normal day" and stick it in his backpack. because he is a super hero every day and I know it will put a big smile on his face.
Made to order lunch bags by Mooreminutes. I try to make his lunch everyday. Wouldn't this be a fun way to have him fill out what he wants. It sure beats me interrupting him to ask.
Naptimejournal. Fill these left over bottles with his favorite treat. The labels rock too! You can give him one a day/week/month... so versatile.
